ABOUT THE CAPTAIN
Ricky is a bass fishing guide in Central Florida with a true love for the water. He holds a US Coast Guard Master 100-ton license and is a commercially insured Captain.
As a youngster, he was raised fishing and hunting by his grandfather. Thanks to his grandfather’s love for the outdoors, it quickly became Ricky’s passion and he grew up fishing local ponds, lakes, and rivers.
At the age of 13, Ricky attended a Bassmaster University seminar to learn the sport of bass fishing and he was officially hooked on tournament bass fishing.
He began fishing in a local bass fishing club. After developing a passion for local tournament club fishing, he began fishing Bassmaster and FLW Opens in 2015 which he continues to fish along with the local tournament trails.
“Endless long days on the water and exposure to different bodies of water all over the country have made me a better angler over the years, and I want to share that knowledge.
After a day on the water with me, I want any level of fisherman to leave with memorable experiences: Florida’s wildlife, good conversation, newly learned skills, and, of course, a potential catch of a lifetime.”
